About Ty Landrum

Ty Landrum is the director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. He teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the traditional, contemplative and experimental style of his mentors, Mary Taylor and Richard Freeman. With a PhD in Philosophy, Ty has a special touch for explaining the theory of yoga with color and creativity. His passion as a teacher is to share the brilliance of yoga with anyone who wants to learn.

Ty has been an Ashtanga practitioner since 2005. He was introduced to the method by Jennifer Elliott atAshtanga Yoga Charlottesville, where he practiced for seven years. In 2012, after completing a doctoral degree in Philosophy from the University of Virginia, Ty moved to Boulder to study with Mary Taylor and Richard Freeman. Since then, under their guidance, he has learned some unspeakably wonderful things about the art of yoga. He now travels the world teaching workshops, intensives and retreats.

Second Series Intensive

The Second Series is called Nadi Shodana, or the clearing of the little rivers, the clearing of the subtle channels through which our animating forces move.  The Second Series can help us open these channels, and clear away the sediment of the past, so we can be more transparent to ourselves, and more receptive to reality.

In this intensive, we explore the rhythm and flow of the Second Series, looking not only at the postures, but at the dynamic sequences of breath and movement to which they belong. We learn to work intelligently with these sequences, adapting them to our unique bodies and circumstances, so we can gradually melt into them, and allow ourselves to dissolve.

Anyone who wants to explore the internal dynamics of the Second Series is welcome to join. There are no requirements of technical proficiency, but you should be a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner, and you should have that distinctive focus of breath, attention, and gaze that comes from steeping yourself in the practice for a long time.

Our approach to the Second Series will be generous and forgiving.  Instead of concerning ourselves with contorting our bodies into conventional standards of external form, we will focus on embodying the postures on more subtle and energetic levels.  More pointedly, we will explore the series as an instrument for clearing away old patterns of conditioning, and connecting to a more open, lucid and compassionate state of awareness.
